What is a Patent?
At some point in the career of many aspiring business professionals, engineers or inventors, the day comes when the question is raised – “what is a patent?” It is the kind of question a patent attorney in or anywhere else will have heard many times. If you’re not a patent attorney, the answers to these questions can seem arcane, but they can actually be boiled down to layman’s terms. Simply put, there are two kinds of patents, Utility and Design.
A utility patent is often issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) for the invention of a new and useful process, machine, manufacture or composition of matter. An issued utility generally permits its owner to exclude others from making, using, or selling the invention for a period of up to twenty years from the date of utility patent application filing.
To obtain a patent, you must show three things:
- That the invention is new…no one else has already invented it,
- That the invention is useful…that it does something functional, and
- That the invention or improvement is not obvious to one skilled in that art.
A design patent is a patent on the ornamental design of a functional item. Package Specials include the initial meeting with the attorney, preparation and filing of your application, drawings per USPTO rules completed by a draftsman, and the USPTO filing fees for a Small Entity.
